THESE VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS — THESE SYMBOLS — MAKE IT SO THE IMMATURE CONSCIOUS MIND HAS NO TROUBLE FOCUSING ON AND INTERNALIZING THESE ABSTRACT CONCEPTS. SPIRITUAL SYMBOLS AND RITUALS SERVE, IN PART, AS “TRAINING WHEELS” FOR OUR CONSCIOUS MIND. RITUAL AND SYMBOL NOT ONLY PROVIDE A MEANS FOR THE CONSCIOUS MIND TO PERCEIVE ABSTRACT CONCEPTS COMMUNICATED FROM THE SUBCONSCIOUS, THEY ALSO ACCOMMODATE OUR UNDERDEVELOPED CONSCIOUS MIND BY BYPASSING THE NEED FOR SUPREME CLARITY OF FOCUS. WHEN AN ABSTRACT CONCEPT IS PLAINLY DISPLAYED IN THE FORM OF A SYMBOL, FOCUS AND COMPREHENSION ARE MUCH LESS OF AN ISSUE. BY USING THESE “TRAINING WHEELS,” WE AFFECT CHANGE IN OUR SUBCONSCIOUS PATTERNS OF THOUGHT, WHICH IN TURN LEADS TO MATURATION OF OUR CONSCIOUS MINDS, LEADING TO A GREATER DEGREE OF FOCUS; A GREATER DEGREE OF UNDERSTANDING OF THE SYMBOLS ON THE SUBCONSCIOUS LEVEL; AND TO A FURTHER PEELING BACK OF THE VEIL THAT SHROUDS INEFFABLE, EXPERIENTIAL WISDOM. - J.
